Vermont OK's Same-sex Marriage

Vermont OK's Same-sex Marriage

The Vermont legislature today approved same-sex marriage, a vote that will allow same-sex couples to marry beginning Sept. 1.

The decision comes on the heels of Friday's decision of the Iowa Supreme Court to uphold same-sex marriage.

Today, four U.S. states now sanction same-sex unions: Vermont, Iowa, Connecticut and Massachusetts.

The California Supreme Court last year OK'd same-sex marriage, but the ruling was overturned when Proposition 8, which limited marriage to opposite-sex couples, was passed by voters in November.
